It is about understanding the common tendencies of the jungian notion of «archetype» and «pre-image» in the context of their comparative characteristics. The analysis of these concepts will be carried out on research materials by N.V. Medvedeva, according to the theory of archetypes by K.G. Jung and the concept of creative perception by V.O. Molyako. The exploration of structural and functional patterns of actualization of the initial preconditions of the process of perception are seen as essencial. Sharing the conceptual idea of K.G Jung, on the structuring elements of the archetype, N.V. Medvedeva brings an understanding of the concept of «pre-image», by V.O. Molyako, closer to the concept of «archetype» by K.G. Jung, and concludes that it is regarded as a creative process of cognition, which is considered to be a pre-image as the guiding structural basis. Considering archetypes to be «pre-image» prerequisites for the organization and regulation of the process of perception, we will focus on the system-strategic concept by V.O. Molyako as experimentally tested methodology. The «pre-image» will be actualized as a deep strategic mechanism of the process of perception and will serve as a determinative prerequisite for its organization and implementation. Creative perception will be understood as the productive activity of the subject, inducing archetype factors as «pre-image» prerequisites for its possible actualization. Archetype factors will be regarded as special psychic determinants of strategic trends in mental thinking, contributing to the functional structuring and regulation of the perception process.
